Hello all. I just got my new Taco 2 days ago from John Elway in Ontario CA. Got a super deal on it w entune and the works. The modding has already begun with a tuffy rear locking storage box and pop and lock tailgate handle. Before you all(or most) flame me for not getting a stock trd and doing suspension and tires. I'm gonna let you know why I went Baja.
1. Factory warranty on everything with no questions asked.
2. Price YES PRICE. I paid $35,500 for the truck w entune.
3. No head aches. EVen if I saved dough on the king, toyotec, ome or whatever shocks, I am no wrencher so I would need to pay for install, and I would have a truck down for who knows how long while everything but the toyotecs(which no one wanted to install for less than $350) get rebuilt(in 35k miles or less).
Mods to come:
I need a rear soft top(leaning to it) or a hard top. My 2 kids and 75 lb dog are a bit much in the back seat! I was debating between a softopper and a custom job that that guy does in the group buy area. Any opinions on them? Anyone ever seen a picture of a white truck with a white soft top? I can't find any anywhere(not even softopper had a pic!(I'm not going bestop because it doesn't vent enough, no screen options, etc)
Bumper and winch. I'm either thinking Aluminess or other aluminum, with a 8k smittybuilt w synthetic rope. There is another guy on here w baja running a steel plate bumper w a winch/synthetic w no issues or significant sag, so I should be super good w aluminum bumper.
